I know what you mean. Some items here have been taken down here mostly because I or someone else flagged them. But if I and the others were not to say anything, what would happen? From what I've seen, most of the copyright fuss is focused on more recent material. "Oasis Of The Zombies" got taken down because I brought it to staff's attention. If I hadn't said anything, it would likely still be here, at least until someone else flags it. Now if someone was to upload "Avatar", (and a few people have,) it would be deleted long before it got moved to Feature Films. No one would have to say anything.

The only one I'm surprised is gone is Idaho Transfer, since it's already available on so many PD DVD collections. Well, that and The Alpha Incident. Neither film is particularly great, but if one is desperate enough, Mill Creek has 'em in those 50-movie box sets.

Yeah, like I said, they'd probably still be here if someone didn't flag them. I think it's great that the PD integrity is able to be maintained as well as it has, mostly because most users here care enough to speak up.

I saw that "warning" someone left in a review of "No Time For Sergeants" and thought it sounded kind of funny myself. I left a comment there and said so. Should I have brought it here and commented about it instead? Just so that more people would have had a chance to see it?
